Genotropin pen Pfizer 12mg 36IU medical term is Somatropin and it is manufactured using recombinant DNA technology. The synthesis process involves bacteria, Escherichia Coli K12 which contains pBR322 plasma and carries the gene for a prohormone consisting of 191 amino acids. These acids form human growth hormone and are preceded by a peptide that contains 23 signals. This signal peptide is isolated from a specific peptidase signal found in the plasma membrane. Human growth hormone is then carefully collected through the bacterium's outer wall. A purification process follows which guarantees the purity of the final product. This final product is genetically engineered to identify the amino acids present in the human pituitary growth hormone. The drug can be administered in both pen and syringe:
1. Genotropin pen Pfizer 12mg 36IU "Go-Quick" – Somatropin for injection, 5.3mg lyophilized powder
2. Genotropin pen Pfizer 12mg 36IU "Mini-Quick" – Somatropin for injection, lyophilized powder 0.2 mg, 0.4 mg, 0.6 mg

Genotropin pen Pfizer 12mg 36IU is a powerful metabolic hormone that is crucial for the development of lipids, proteins and carbohydrates. In children with stunted growth, Genotropin stimulates growth and accelerates the growth rate. In adults, genotropin maintains regular body composition through increased nitrogen retention and increased skeletal and muscle growth and by optimizing body fat.
